Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

Yes, that's exactly the one I was talking about. Be careful when modifying the outlet on the tank.. It may be a rare occurrence but you don't want it to happen to you. I would also avoid a plastic...

Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

Replace them with stainless and be done with it. Not that expensive. Recommend Classic Tube custom bent to fit. Easy job.

Re: 1940 Ford Tailight Conversion to LED lenses or bulbs

Re: 40 Ford LED Park Light and rear Bulb Question

Looks like 12v only without reverse polarity. There are other sources that have these in 6 v. No good to me.

Re: 1940 Battery

You might want to use a 6 volt Optima in a look-a-like Ford Group 2 case.

Re: Bob Drake '40 Gas Tank

Plus the stock sender won't work. If you get his sender, then it is not accurate with your gauge because it works on ohms instead of heat.

Re: Drake 1939 Deluxe-1940 Radiator

I think you are better off with Brassworks. For $100 more you can get a 4 row with 10 fins per inch.

And you can skip the split design at no extra charge. Made in USA too.
